Summary
Revelations and racy anecdotes about the lives of the rich and famous of Dublin and London abound within this book. From a violent domestic background, Peg blitzed her way through balls and masquerades creating scandals and gossip wherever she went, leaving dukes, barristers and lieutenants stranded in her wake. She was the first madame ever to write her memoirs, thereby setting the template for the whore's memoir. She wrote not merely to reveal herself but to expose the shoddy behaviour of others and her account of her life. In this book, Julie Peakman brings her subject and the world through which she moved to glorious, bawdy life
